Repair3D (Recycling and repurposing of plastic waste for advanced 3d printing applications) is an European project, co-funded by Horizion2020, that aims at the development of innovative reclamation and repurposing routes for end -of -life plastic and carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) components. This will be achieved by employing advanced nanotechnology solutions, Additive Manufacturing (AM) and recycled resources, for the production of high added value 3D printed products with advanced functionalities. In this way, the combination of AM, polymer processing and… Read More »REPAIR3D: Additive Manufacturing and recycled resources for high added value 3D printed products

This is an interesting question that can be answered with “Yes”. Such 3D printed houses are called Ashen Cabin, which has been realized by the designer studio HANNAH. In these houses, for example, the chimney 3D was printed. The material of concrete is also suitable for the 3D. Sounds unbelievable at first sight, but it is possible.

SAMANTHA project, financed by European Commission in the field of the Erasmus + programme, Strategic Partnerships for Vocational Education and Training, has the aim of creating Skills in Additive MANufacturing for the Toolmaking and HAbitat Sectors. The consortium, guided by KIT, is actively formed by AMUEBLA (Spain), CEIPES (Italy), CENFIM (Spain), CENTROCOT (Italy), ILI-FAU (Germany) and TECOS (Slovenia). The SAMANTHA project wants to anticipate the improvement/update strategy, especially in the field of VET because the current offer of European VET… Read More »Discover the general development of the SAMANTHA project
On April 22 and 23, AMUEBLA, the cluster of companies in the furniture sector in the Region of Murcia, hosted online the second monitoring meeting of the SAMANTHA project, co-financed by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme and coordinated by KIT. In this meeting, the consortium put an end to the work carried out in the IO1 and presented the results obtained after the surveys carried out with students and VET teachers or professionals coming from the habitat and toolmaking sector.… Read More »SAMANTHA project has successfully held its second telematic meeting, despite the COVID-19
After successfully completing the first phase of the project, Intellectual Output 1, we now move on to the design of the second phase, Intellectual Output 2. In this phase, T-Skills take shape. Horizontal properties are the general characteristics in this area. In our project, these are the modules of Creativity and social innovation, communication skills, Project management techniques and Business model innovation. These modules can also be called soft skills in this area. Depth in this area is vertical. This… Read More »The project enters its second phase
“SAMANTHA”: report on the situation and evolution of Additive Manufacturing in the Toolmaking & Habitat sectors both on the industrial and VET Systems. The first intellectual product of the SAMAMTHA (reference number: 2019-1- DE02-KA202-006458) project is now online. It is a report on the situation and evolution of Additive Manufacturing in the Toolmaking and Habitat sectors and related VET training offer: high-tech T-shaped skills and competences in different occupations (mismatches). SAMANTHA project aims to develop a novel training program addressing the… Read More »SAMANTHA project achieves all the objectives of IO1
From September 2019 until April 2020 partners of SAMANTHA project: Skills in Additive MANufacturing for the Toolmaking and HAbitat Sectors will be involved in the realization of the first intellectual product of the project. Specifically, in a report on the situation and evolution of additive Manufacturing in the toolmaking and Habitat sectors and related VET training offer: high-tech T-shaped skills and competences in different occupations (mismatches). The consortium partner is undertaking deep analysis in order to have a complete overview… Read More »The activities of the SAMANTHA project have just started!
At the Long Night of Sciences 2019 #Ndw19 – a major event in the region of Nuremberg, Fürth and Erlangen – the Institute for Innovation in Learning #ILI presented its EU projects to a broad public in the rooms of the LearningLab in Erlangen #fau_learninglab. The presentation of the SAMANTHA project was accessible for all visitors on the available laptops and offered a good introduction to exciting dialogues about digital innovation and changes in the field of industrial Toolmanufacturing and… Read More »SAMANTHA at the Long Night of Sciences
